DAST HIS LOT WITH BLACKS.
. White Mtan Who Was Brought Up
Take the case of Rev. W. J. White,
the editor of a Baptist weekly published
at Augusta, Ga. White is a man of in
telligence and integrity, and his ac
count of his early life has Lever been
Briefly this is the story: A few years
before the war a dark faced boy made
his appearance on a large Georgia plan
tation. He was supposed to be a mulat
to, and when the planter died the
youngster was sold with the estate.
After the war this alleged mulatto
picked up aneducation and investigated
his ancestr. He was not much sur
prised to learn that he did not have a
particle of negro blood in his veins. His
mother was an Indian and his father
was a white man.
White was not long, in deciding to
cast his lot with the blacks. He had al
ways been eassed with them. It seemed
to be the will of the Almighty that he
should share the burdens of the negro
race, and be made up his mind to stick
to his old companions. -
He -prospered and became a leader
among the people. He has the respect
and confidence of both races, but he has
never attempted to rise above what he
believes to be his divinely ordained
sphere. It is easy to see at a glance that
this man is not a mulatto or a qaad
roon, for his mixed Indian and Cau
casian blood cannot be mistaken; but he
has no desire to cut loose from the ex
slaves with whom he has spent' the
best years of his life.
Many of the white ministers of his
denomination know the peculiar facts
of his case, and they treat him with
great consideration. Uncomplainingly
he leads his life of self sacrifice, and his
only object seems to be the advancement
of his adopted race. He married a mu
latto and submits to all the laws and
social distinctions which separate the
two races in the south.
Few men similarly situated would
have followed White's example. As a
rule, people of Indian and white parent.

HOW ALLSPICE GROWS.
Something About the Beautiful and Fra
grant Pimento Tree.
The pimento or allspice tree is culti
'vated in the West Indies and Jamaica.
This beautiful tree usually grows to a
height of about 30 feet. It has a straight
trunk, much branched above, and cov
ered with a v.ery smooth brown bark.
The leaves vary in size and shape, but
are always ~of a dark, shining green
dqlor. During the months of July and
Auguist the tree 'is in full bloom, the
maconsisting of very fragrant,
SWhen a- new'phanttierofisio
trees is to be formed, no regular sowing
or planting takes place, because it is
next to impossible to propagate the
*young plants or to raise them from
seeds in parts of the country where they
are not found growing spontaneously.
Usually a piece of land is selected either
close to.a plantation already formed or
in apart of the wocodland where pimen
-to trees are growing in a native state.
-The chosen piece of land is then cleared
of all wood except these trees, and the
felled timber is allowed to remain on
~the ground for the purpose of protecting
the very young pimento plants.
At the end of two years the land is
thoroughly cleared, and only the most
vigorous pimento trees and plants are
left standing. The plants come to ma
turity iii about seven years.
In favorable seasons the pimento crop
-is enormous, a single tree often yielding
a hundred or more pounds of the dried
spice' The berries are picked while
green, because if left on the tree until
ripe they lose their pungent taste and
are valueless. The green berries are ex
posed to the sun for a week uir ten days,
when they lose their green color and
turn a reddish brown. When perfectly
dry, they are put in bags and casks for
The odor and the taste of the pimento
berries are thought to rese'mble a com
bination of those of cinnamon, nutmeg
and cloves; hence the familiar name
"allspice. "-Philadelphia Times.

MEN A"ND MONKEYS.
THE DWARFS AND THE LEMURS OF
A People Who Average Ouly 3 Feet 6
Inches In Height-Queer Little Animals
Which Are Considered Coninecting Links
Between Monkeys and Lower orders.
There are at least two distinct tribes
of Malagasy dwarfs, who are among
the smallest people in the world. The
Kimos average only 3 feet 6 inches in
height. --iey are rather light in color,
have remarkably long arms and are
bold in defending their territory, using
spear and bow. Of pastoral habits,-they
excel in certain handicrafts. They dwell
in the southern center of the island, at
a high elevation above the sea.
Even more monkeylike are the Be
hosy, who occupy a densely wooded
country among the hills of Bemaraha.
They jump from tree to tree just like
monkeys and are not easily followed,
inasmuch as their territory is exceed
ingly rocky. They are very timid, and
it is said that they die of fright wher
captured. In the northern part of Mad
agascar is the most remarkable natural
fortress in the world. It is occupied by
a tribe who call themselves the peop1C
of the rocks. The fortress is a lofty
and prccipitosis rock, of enormous size,
1,000 feet high and eight squaie nuleq
in area. Its sides are so steep that it
cannot be climbed without artificial
means. Within it is hollow, and thc
only entrance is by a subterranean
passage, a portion of which is so narrow
that only one person can pass at a time,
while on either side of the path is deel
There is plents of room for explora
tion andfresh discovery in Madagaspar,
which is the third largest island in the
world. It is nearly four times the size
of England and Wales, having an area
of 280,000 square miles. The most re
markable animals found there are the
true lemurs, which exist nowhere else
in the world, though related fornas nc
ur in Africa and India. They are re
garded by naturalists as links connect
ing the monkeys with the lower mam
mals. There are about 20 species, and
the collection made by Dr. W. E. Ab
bott contains one that is entirely new
to science. The biggest are about three
One of the most remarkable species is
called tho "specter" because it is pure
white, and in going about at night has
a striking and ghostlike appearance,
Other kinds are black, with bands of
yellow and red-in fact, they are very
striking looking animals. Roughly
speaking, they are divided into two
groups-the long tailed and the short
tailed. The latter do not survive cap
tivity for any length of time, but the
long tailed ones have been brought to
Europe and have been induced to breed
in cages, especially a peculiar ring tail
There used to be lemurs in North
America long ages before man appeared
on this continent. Professor Cope, the
famous paleontologist, found the skull of
one in Colorado a few years ago. He
regards it as the most precious object in
his great collection of fossils. The skull
is not bigger than a squiri-el's. Anato
mists classify animals by their teeth
more accurately than in any other way.
The jaws of this small lemur are pro
vided with a dentition so surprisingly
humanlike that one might actually im
agine the teeth to
..Jt'~ithou t that the lemurs may
have originated on the American centi
nent and spread westward to Asia over
a land route which has since disap
peared. That is only a speculative the
ory. It is practically certl'in that there
was anciently a land connection between
Madagascar and Africa. A great geo
logical convulsion having separated the
island from the mainland, the lemurs in
Madagascar found conditions favorable
for their survival, while elsewhere they
disappeared. Thus it comes about that
this strange group of mammals is re
stricted to Madagascar today. They are
very monkeylike. In fact, they might
be called low down monkeys. They live
in trees and feed on fruits and insects.
The lemurs wandered about in flocks.
By means of their strong hind legs they
are able to leap from tree to tree dis
tances of ten feet or more, so that they
look as if they were flying. Occasionally

walking for short spaces erect and wav
ing their arms over their heads in such
a way as to present a remarkable effect.
Toward nightfall the forests resound
with their startled cries. They eat the
eggs of birds when they can get them.
Though disposed by nature to be shy,
they are quite har~nk ss and tamable to
some extent in captivity.
At night the woods 6f Madagascar
are vocal with the wailing cries of the
lemurs, which sound like the lamenta
tions of human beings in distress. These
creatures have heads more ioxlike than
monkeylike, with sharp muzzles and
large, expressive eyes. The smallest
species of lemur is about the size of a
big rat. Another kind has white whisk
ers, and yet another is provided with
a bushy tail, which in repose is usually
coiled around the animal's neck like a

some sneak thief had entered the hotel

pairs of shoes, among them Ealbe's.
In Munich, Halbe's wife was anxious

fears, since he could not arrive on time,

F1IST MAIL COACH.
IT MADE ITS APPEARANCF. IN ENG
fLAND IN AU.GUST, 1784.
John Palmer, a Theatrical Manager,
Brought Out the Idea-P'!tt Helped
Him to Put It Into Execution Against
Pretty Strong Opposition.
"To Trade Expedition and Pc _erty
Protection." This was the legend on the
mail coach halfpenny struck to com
memorate the introduction of the, mail
coach by John Palmer of the Bath thea
ter on Aug. 2, 1784, an undertaking
which is not without its effect today.
The careful student of the "Postal
Guide" will not fail to notice what fa
cilities are opei to him for the trans
mission of important letters. Over and
above frequent collections and conven
iently late hours for posting, he can hand
his letter in at a railway station parcels
office; he can post in late letter boxes at
the station serving the district for which
his clter is intended, while up to the
last moment there hangs outside the
sorting van a box into which letters may
be dropped preparatory to being whirled
away throughout the length and breadth
of England at the rate of .50 miles an
hour, and to be delivered next morning
at inaiuy a distant breakfast table,
To appreciate to the full the present
state of postal facilities, one should
look at the system under which mails
were carried prior to the Palmer era.
For two or three centuries before the
first mail coach ran the post was carried
by men or boys on horseback, but in
1720 Ralph Allen, from whom Fielding
took his ideas for Squire Allworthy in
"Tom Jones, " sent in a contract to farm
the cross country posts and to carry the
mails by what were sabsequently kaown
rs '"Alen's Postboys, " vho were sup
posed to travel en horseback at a pace
averaging five miles an hour.
Palme'r, in explaining his scheme for
refor': to Pitt in 1783, thus criticised
the then existing state of things: "The
post," he said, "at present, instead of
being the quickest, is almost the slow
est conveyance in the country, and al
though, from tho great improv-ements
in our roads, other carriers have pro:
portionately mended their speed, 'the
post is as slow as ever." Palmer point
ed out to the authorities that the system
then in vogue was unsafe, "for, " said
he, "the mails are generally intrusted
to some idle boy without a character,
mounted on a wornout hack, and who,
so far from being able to defend himself
or escape from a robber, is far more
ikely to be in league with him."
Wha wvas known as the robbery of
the Brighton mail in 1792 was not by
stopping of a mail coach by a well
ounted highwayman, but the stopping
of a lad of about 15 years old by a
couple of loafing footpads named Rooke
and Howell,-who were afterward hanged
in due course, and the circumstance of
the mother of Rooko going.night 'after
night to the gibbet to collect the bones
as they were blown down by the wind
Sggeted the poem "3izpah."
Those boys without characters and
the wretched horses they bestrode were
cheap labor, and the profits on the con
tract enabled Allen te turn in about
12, 000 a year and to take up his resi
dence at Prior Park, one of the finest
Italian houses in England, and it is
said that it was the sight of this grand
pae0 gud thg lknggdg of how Allen's
geted to Palmer the attempt to bring
his scheme to the notice of the postal
authorities. Jobn Palmer was lessee
and manager of the Bath and Bristol
theaters-it was at the old theater at
Bath that actors like L'ee,..Crawford,
Henderson, Siddons and Brunton smade
some of their early appearances, while,
thanks to the influence of friends, Bath
New theater was the only patent thea
ter out of Londion.
Palmer always appears to have been
a man of more or less horsy tastes; like
the late Mr. Newcome of the Plymouth
theater, and his business led him to
travel a good deal about the country.
With him time was money ; so, abjuring
the slow, rumbling stagecoach, he went
abut beating up actors, actresses and
companies in postchaises, alwvays, of
course, passing thc coaches on the road
along which he was traveling. With
the mail coach of the future in his eye
he asked himself, remembering that a
letter took three days to go from Bath
to London, why letters should not be
carried at tie same pace at which it
was possible to travel in a chaise? Hk'
kept a record of times and distances,
and, havirg thought out all details and
deeming his scheme ripe for adoption,
he sought the good offices of Mr. John
Pratt, afterward Lord Camden, by
whom Palmer was introduced to Pitt,
who warmly approved the idea.
Lords Carteret and Tankerville, the
joint postmasters general, besides not
being experts were bound securely
hand and foot by fetters of red tape, and
so contented themselves with learning
the opinions of the postoffice officials,
who, it were almost needless to tell,
were almost to a man against Palmer.
The farsceing Pitt was not long in
coming to the conclusion that more
than half of the objections to the pro
posed mail coach had their outcome in
jealousy; so, calling together Palmer,
the postmasters general and sundry hos
tile officials, he decided that the system
should have a trial. - London Tele
